Crayon at Maximum Rock n Roll

Twenty years after it’s original release HHBTM has reissued this album on vinyl for the first time. If you’ve heard of this band, you probably love them. But for the uninitiated out there, ask yourself this: do you cringe at the word “twee”? No? Okay, please continue reading. This is the album of your dreams if you wished the Pastels incorporated a little more grunge into their sound. It’s total bedroom indie pop, but a bit more fuzzed-out and distorted than you might expect. Not abrasive by any means – the whole album gives you that floating-on-a-cloud feeling. It’s cool, definitely a record well worth re-release.
